Dental Implants

Dr. Shepherd on Dental Implants Read Transcript

Have your missing teeth forced you to change your diet? Do you keep your damaged teeth hidden behind closed lips when you get your picture taken? If you’re ready to get your powerful bite and beautiful smile back, contact Uptown Dental Associates for a variety of dental implant options in Albuquerque, NM!

At our lovely Albuquerque, NM dentist office, Dr. Ryan Shepherd and our professional team provide a variety of restorative dentistry options to rejuvenate your smile!

Your Dental Implants Options

At Uptown Dental Associates, we can use dental implants to replace a single tooth or even every tooth in your mouth! Here are just some of the dental implant restoration options we offer:

  • Dental crowns – A crown can be created to fit perfectly on your dental implant and blend in naturally with the rest of your smile.
  • Dental bridges – If you need to replace multiple adjacent teeth, we can provide a fixed dental bridge without having to modify your surrounding teeth.
  • Implant dentures – We offer both implant-retained and implant-supported dentures so you won’t have to worry about your teeth coming loose.

Depending on your situation, if we need to perform a tooth extraction, we may even be able to place your dental implants in the same visit!

The Many Advantages Of Dental Implants

Because dental implants literally fuse with your jawbone, they provide a sturdy foundation for your replacement teeth – up to 90 percent of the biting power of your natural teeth!

Along with their strength, dental implants offer many advantages over other restorative options, because they:

  • Look, feel, and function like your natural teeth
  • Can last a lifetime with proper care
  • Prevent bone and tissue loss, helping you maintain your youthful look
  • Do not require modification of your surrounding healthy teeth

Suitable candidates for dental implants need a strong, thick jawbone. We will carefully assess your situation and explain all of your options before we begin any restorative procedures.

Your Comfort Is Our Priority

When you arrive at our beautiful office, we will do everything we can to put you at ease. To improve your comfort, we can provide options like:

  • Care rooms with a serene view of our courtyard or private care rooms
  • Pillows and blankets
  • Headphones

We can even provide longer appointments by request so you won’t feel rushed and can help relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options!
